George Zimmerman sues
NBC and reporters

Associated Press, by Mike Schneider

Original Article

Posted By:jond, 12/6/2012 6:42:12 PM

Orlando, Fla. - George Zimmerman sued NBC on Thursday, claiming he was defamed when the network edited his 911 call to police after the shooting of Trayvon Martin to make it sound like he was racist. The former neighborhood watch volunteer filed the lawsuit seeking an undisclosed amount of money in Seminole County, outside Orlando. Also named in the complaint were three reporters covering the story for NBC or an NBC-owned television station. The complaint said the airing of the edited call has inflicted emotional distress on Zimmerman, making him fear for his life and causing him

Comments:
He´s trampling on their First Amendment rights.

He should also sue Obama, Jackson, Sharpton & Spike Lee. They all contributed to the racial hysteria. And don´t forget the Obama buddies = New black Panthers for the bounty ´dead or alive´.

Next up would be Crump & Parks, the DAs ofc.
and lots more.

This has been a travesty of justice.

Many of us were appalled and sickened by the race-baiting coverage of this story by NBC and other mainstream media outlets. This was clear-cut malpractice by NBC. I would hope Zimmerman sues NBC for multi millions of dollars. NBC must be made an example of.

Simple he waited until he was able to secure a copy of the color photo taken by the first responder cop showing him bleeding from the nose and other places.
That photo proves NBC filtered data and more or less lied.

From NBC: There was no intent to portray Mr. Zimmerman unfairly," she said. "We intend to vigorously defend our position in court.

Translation: NBC is preparing to offer a settlement because they know their goose is cooked. At this point the argument is about whether NBC pays what? One Mil? 10 Mil? 100 Mil?

Never in my life have I seen such a disgusting display of self-righteousness, lies, propaganda, and judicial incompetence all for the sake of race-baiting. It´s only topped by Travon´s loathsome parents´ ostentatious displays of "grief" while holding hands and pretending to be together so they can milk every available dime from their son´s death.

I hope a major settlement from NBC is only the beginning of the comeuppance due the whole race-baiting industry. A plague on all their houses!

There was certainly malice intended by NBC in this case. They wanted to portray Zimmerman as a racist and generally damage him in any way they could. No ´Absence of Malice´ here.

This is pure libel and a good jury will give him a huge settlement.

The MSM also guaranteed that the American electorate could not make a fair appraisal of Obama and Romney. I have long argued that suing them is the only way to start bringing this corruption down. Complaining about "bias" has proven to be time and breath utterly wasted. They are manifestly corrupt. Take them to court for their crimes against the truth.

Of course NBC will try to defend vigorously the civil suit. They may be on the hook for criminal charges too. Last thing they want is to have the civil record contain evidence that will burn them on the criminal side.

Personally, I hope Zimmerman and his lawyers are successful on both fronts. NBC is a despicable organization, IMHO, and it deserves to lose its broadcast license among other penalties.

Freedom of speech: News papers, TV, Radio, etc have every right to write or say whatever they want, in any way they want be it truth or fiction.

Libel: defamation by written or printed words, pictures, or in any form other than by spoken words or gestures.

Slander: defamation by oral utterance rather than by writing, pictures, etc.

Zimmerman has been defamed in both venues. First by NBC and the news print which he has every right to go after on the principle of Libel.

He has also been defamed by the likes of Sharpton and his ilk on the principle of Slander.

It´s in Zimmerman´s corner to prove there was no truth in the allegations of racism which probably will be possible and he should reap a good harvest. Right now he has an extremely biased constituency to confront in his upcoming trial.

God willing, he will win that also.

Any civil lawyers out there?? I have a law degree and license, but I mainly did criminal prosecution and administrative law. I can´t recall the standards for libel. IIRC, only "public figures" have to prove "actual malice". Ordinary folks like Zimm only have to prove that the defendant intentionally(?) published false information and the plaintiff suffered damage as a result. I also recall something about "false light", ie publishing stuff that may technically be truthful but that paints a false picture of the plaintiff. NBC could be cooked either way, I can think of no benign motive for editing out the dispatcher´s question to Zimm. And of course NBC will do their best to settle, hopefully it will cost them enough to hurt.

I was wondering about that as well, #57 (though I´m no lawyer).

I´d have to wonder also if NBC will attempt to hide behind the ´public figure´ defense, though I can only see that as an epic fail, since Zimmerman may be in that category now, he certainly wasn´t at the time of the incident, and it was NBC who made the man a pariah.

Burn, NBC, burn!

This case will end badly either way. if zimmerman loses, blacks will feel empowered to attack at will any white who happens to be walking more or less in their direction. if zimmerman wins, the blacks will riot and many innocent people will die.

in the end it will be a better, more just outcome if zimmerman wins. no one should feel they have the right to initiate an assault on someone because you think they are follwing you, let alone to pin them down and smash their head on the pavement.

Irrelevant if your´re a thug , a hood , a career criminal who just got out of prison , if you´re black , you´re to be protected by media . The media wing of the socialist party cannot take ANY chances rubbing that precious black vote the wrong way , and they know how volatile it can get . Just look at the riots . Who , if possible , should step up now is that sports team that was so blatantly smeared by the media wing .

Think of this as a precedent setting moment in the attack on government controlled, war controlled media. Racism, their robotic shouting of it, is just one of the Diane Sawyers robots cruel weapons against the people. Zimmerman goes to court and thereby gets lots of national attention from all the other robots. We can´t all go to court. We can attack each crappy news droid as often as possible and make their lives miserable. Nobody attacks the Diane Sawyers for their daily brainwashing, not a soul opposes the commie View, and so many other shows. It´s time each aware citizen focused criticism on the actual people, the shows, the companies, even the sponsors who don´t seem to care. We only look to the greedy Congress for help that is not ever coming. Boehner, imagine, is right there in the midst of Obama´s dictatorship, and he says nothing. Does not speak out for less government, no more taxes, less awful regulations, says nothing. And Boehner is the most important person on our side ???
We need more Bachmanns everywhere, more Palins, more Michelle Malkins, more Mark Steyns, we need constant criticizing from citizen and elected alike. They all have to attack each media lie. Last, we need our own unionized newspeople like Hannity, Rush
OReilly, Glenn, Huckabee to attacke their so called colleagues, the commie, statist brainwasher like Diane Sawyer and Brokaw. Attack them challege them on the air daily.

Some American Patriots must have stepped up & helped him file. The reason this is very important is that the MSM is using it as a baseline, to define every black on white attack.

Another race riot inducing act by the MSM is to use photos of the attacker when he was 12 yrs old... not the gang banger pics from his own website.

Again... this has become the norm,... it is being repeated in other black on white crimes.

Horrific crimes aside, I object to ´designer´ legislation with names like Megan´s Law, Rachel´s Law, Leah´s Law, etc. etc.

In this case I make an exception - George Zimmerman should lay waste to NBC and there should be a ´Richard Jewell´ law enabling targets of media bias and character assassination to fast-track their counter-claims.

This will give conservatives an MSM network channel.

Reuters has the same story with the prejudicial headline "Trayvon Martin´s killer sues NBC over racist ´myth´"

Zimmerman should sue Reuters too!

I agree with #16. I wouldn´t mind hearing that NBC (nothing but communists) is gone and replaced by ZBC (Zimmerman Broadcasting Co.)

If the financial damages are enough to push NBC out of business, a good start. CNN still on the ropes, too. Newsweek hardcopies go away at the of this month. Too bad that Obie got re-elected on their backs, no? Zimmerman is about to become a very wealthy individual despite Obie´s attempts to screw us all on his tax hikes.

Obamas remark "if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon" made it personal for all of his supporters. Zimmerman never stood a chance after that.

All Mr. Zimmerman has to do is demonstrate the threats on his life due to the edited actuality, then tell the court that he will need private comprehensive security and a secure place to live and lifetime income in order to protect himself and his family from the thugs...that will be worth about $200 million...

Funny how zippy can comment on this case when he knows nothing about it, but can´t comment on Bengaze after 10 weeks and all that intelligence at his command. Any drop of a hat is racist to him.

PERTH, Australia — Australian officials moved the search area for the lost Malaysian jetliner 1,100 kilometers (680 miles) to the northeast Friday following a new analysis of radar data, and planes quickly found multiple objects in the new zone. Five out of 10 aircraft hunting for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 found objects of various colors Friday, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. It said it was not clear whether the objects were from the plane, and photos of them would be analyzed overnight.

The gunman who killed 12 people in last year´s rampage at Washington´s Navy Yard lied so convincingly to Veterans Affairs doctors before the shootings that they concluded he had no mental health issues despite serious problems and encounters with police during the same period, according to a review by The Associated Press of his confidential medical files. Just weeks before the shootings, a doctor treating him for insomnia noted that the patient worked for the Defense Department but wrote hauntingly "no problem there."

Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist who was a founding member of The Doors, has died. He was 74. (Snip) He had been stricken by bile duct cancer. Manzarek founded The Doors after meeting then-poet Jim Morrison in California. The band went on to become one of the most successful rock 'n' roll acts to emerge from the 1960s and continues to resonate with fans decades after Morrison's death brought the band to an end. The Doors sold more than 100 million albums worldwide on hits like "Hello, I Love You," "Riders on the Storm," "Light My Fire," and "Break On Through to the Other Side."

A decision by extremist Islamic militants to ban delivery of food aid and a "normalization of crisis" that numbed international donors to unfolding disaster made south-central Somalia the most dangerous place in the world to be a child in 2011. The first in-depth study of famine deaths in Somalia in 2011 was released Thursday, and it estimates that 133,000 children under age 5 died, with child death rates approaching 20 percent in some communities. That's 133,000 under-5 child deaths out of an estimated 6.5 million people in south-central Somalia.

He’s allegedly killed more people than Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy combined, but most Americans have never heard of him. Two years ago, Philadelphia authorities raided Kermit Gosnell’s inner-city abortion clinic on suspicion he was dealing prescription drugs. What they found there was unimaginably worse: bloodstained medical equipment, semi-conscious patients, cat feces, and dismembered fetal body parts in jars. Gosnell is now standing trial for the murders of one woman and seven infants, who allegedly had their spinal cords slit with scissors after being born alive.

The first soldier to survive after losing all four limbs in the Iraq war has received a double-arm transplant. Brendan Marrocco had the operation on Dec. 18 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, his father said Monday. The 26-year-old Marrocco, who is from New York City, was injured by a roadside bomb in 2009. He also received bone marrow from the same dead donor who supplied his new arms. That novel approach is aimed at helping his body accept the new limbs with minimal medication to prevent rejection.

Orlando, Fla. - George Zimmerman sued NBC on Thursday, claiming he was defamed when the network edited his 911 call to police after the shooting of Trayvon Martin to make it sound like he was racist. The former neighborhood watch volunteer filed the lawsuit seeking an undisclosed amount of money in Seminole County, outside Orlando. Also named in the complaint were three reporters covering the story for NBC or an NBC-owned television station. The complaint said the airing of the edited call has inflicted emotional distress on Zimmerman, making him fear for his life and causing him

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it
